States: Maryland: Cecil
Sharon, Yes!!!, that's what I think. I too, have had others use nicknames or middle names in census and marriage records. Have you tried old church records for Kent Co. Even after the Revolution many still registered children with the parish. The Hyland family in Cecil Co. went to St. Mary Ann's. St. Stephen's is in Cecil Co. but near Kent Co. Land records and wills might give you more information. The church and families are still a big deal on the Eastern Shore, Kent Co. is on the Eastern Shore. I live in Delmarva(Sussex Co. Delaware use to be part of Maryland). Good Luck, Bev.
